JOY

Why does this always happen when I'm wearing the wrong shoes?

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal authorities had prominent financial institutions in New York, Washington and Newark, N.J., under heavy scrutiny Monday after unusually detailed information on a purported al-Qaida plot prompted them to raise the government's terror alert.

My morning walk takes me past the WorldBank/IMF building. Parked in front of it on K Street was a late model Nissan with personalized VA plates up on a jack. No driver in or around the car. Two security gaurds were pacing around it peeking in the windows discussing what to do about it. Something about the scene reminded me of when Elmer Fudd's shotgun isn't firing and he looks inside the barrels.
